What do ceiling painter services include?

Our services include everything you may need from ceiling painters near you, from surface preparation and painting to skim coating and custom finishes. Whether you just had your kitchen redone or you simply want to give your old bedroom ceiling a makeover, Taskers can easily take care of your ceiling painting for you. Here are a few things they can provide:

Color consultation

Have you always wanted to see beautiful colours every time you look up inside your house? You can say goodbye to flat and dull white ceilings by mixing and matching different shades to make your home even more aesthetically pleasing. Your painter can help you choose the best paint colours to suit your space! They can also help you decide on which shade to use depending on the height and vault of your ceiling, the colour of your walls, and your colour scheme preferences.

Consulting an expert ceiling painter about your ceiling's overall look can surely take a load off your back! If you want to take your project up a notch, you can also hire a professional interior designer and make the most out of your space!

Ceiling preparation

It's always wise to prepare the room or area for any painting job. If you recently had your ceilings plastered, you may want to let it dry completely before painting over them. In case you're in the process of new construction, it's also best to work on your ceilings first before your walls so you won't have to worry about excess paint getting on them.

Another step you can take note of this to cover your floors, doors, and other surfaces. In case you're renovating, you can also remove all sorts of obstructions such as furniture, light fixtures, and decor to protect them for accidental paint splatters and drippings. 

Vacuuming the ceiling to remove dust is also crucial so that the primer and paint can stick better to the surface. If you have ceiling holes or cracks, covering them up using a spackle can is also helpful. A stain-blocking primer can help hide your ceiling's flaws, and prevent it from becoming dingy and from having stain bleed-through.

Ceiling painting and finishing

After the consultations and prep work, it's finally time to paint your ceiling! Your painter uses a roller to identify which specific area of your ceiling they can start on. Then, they proceed to roll paint in one smooth direction. It can be a slow process, but this is to make sure that the paint will not spatter. Once the paint is dry, your painter can see to it that there are no splotchy or unpainted areas, or if the ceiling needs a second coat. To top it all of, they can apply a custom finish to avoid any cracks or peeling.

Once all your newly-painted ceilings and walls are dry, you can now proceed with decorating your home as you see fit to make your space truly your own! You can even get a house cleaner to tidy up certain areas, leaving you with a well-decorated and squeaky clean home that you can fully enjoy!
